VOTE.

by Winston "Stone" Ford

The site is going dark for today.

You should not be at a computer right now. You should be out voting or volunteering. Nuff said.

And if you haven’t figured it out yet….The Couch Sessions Proudly Endorses Barack Obama.

Voter Information from the Voter Suppression Wiki:

ACTIVITIES TO PASS THE TIME WAITING IN LINE

  • If you have problems voting, call the hotline numbers (1-866-OUR-VOTE / 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA)

  • If you are in line when the polls close, you are still allowed to vote

    The Voter Suppression Wiki is pretty cool.

    I’ve been working on an election project that utilizes Twitter: Freshly Squeezed Tweets. It aggregates tweets like Twitter Vote Report, but it creates a more abstract visualization of the aggregate conversation on Twitter showing frequency and context of election-related words. The site will pull a continuous stream of tweets mentioning Obama and McCain, representing the most-used terms as a series of bubbles. The bigger the “bubble” the more frequently the term is being used. You can hover over each word to see a graphical breakdown of each word’s use.
